Energy Department Announces $10 Million for Marine Energy Research and Testing Program

The Water Power Technologies Office has issued a Funding Opportunity Announcement to select a network director for a new program to support testing and research for marine energy technologies—the U.S. Testing Expertise and Access for Marine Energy Research (TEAMER) Program. TEAMER will bring together capabilities from universities and the national laboratory system to provide marine energy developers ready-access to unique, world-class testing facilities and expertise. Through its network of facilities and testing protocols, the program will simplify access and reduce costs of testing for MHK technology developers – ensuring access to the appropriate facilities at the appropriate time. Reducing costs, accelerating technology development, and decreasing testing and development timelines of marine energy technologies can help realize the nation’s potential for future growth in marine energy resource extraction. The Water Power Technologies Office is committed to investing in early-stage R&D that enables the domestic marine energy industry to advance toward becoming more cost competitive while also helping to promote economic prosperity and energy security.

Windows 10 Version 1809 RDP Temp Fix

Windows 10 has had a lot of issues over the years. Reminds me of the Windows 95 days, on all the registry tweaks. I will post a response here when a real fix is released. This workaround worked great for us on Windows 10 to Windows 10 Remote desktop connections via VPN. Windows 10 to Windows 7 Remote Desktop Connections via VPN did not have any issues, and thus did not need this workaround.

Hopefully this will help others from pulling their hair out. Keep it real out there, and have a great day.
